Neighbours expressed concern to Edmonton Police About Jamye Pasieka - why did they not pay attention?

Edmonton police have concluded a search at the residence of Jayme Pasieka, the man accused in a multiple stabbing incident at a west-end warehouse.
Sources tell CTV News that officers located weapons inside the apartment.
A neighbour of Pasieka said he had been concerned about the 29-year-old’s behaviour for a while.
“I felt there was something definitely not right with this guy,” Dan Anfield told CTV News.
“One day I came home from work and he was ranting and ravaing and shouting out ‘kill, kill, kill’ and pounding on walls.
“I was concerned for the safety of my kid and the neighbours,” he said adding he had contacted police about his concerns prior to Friday’s attack.
Officials said police have laid several charges against Pasieka, including two charges of first degree murder.
He has also been charged with one count of attempted murder, one charge of aggravated assault and two charges of possession of an offensive weapon.
“He has been very calm, very polite and he has been co-operative,” Staff Sgt. Bill Clark said regarding Pasieka’s behaviour with police.
Emergency crews responded to 161 Street and 121A Avenue around 2 p.m. Friday.
“When our members arrived there it was complete chaos,” Staff Sgt. Clark explained.
The attack left 50-year-old Fitzroy Harris and 41-year-old Thierno Bah dead and four others injured.
Pasieka was said to be armed with two knives and was wearing a military-styled vest during the incident.
Officials said he fled the scene in a green SUV but was arrested around 5 p.m. at 39 Street and 74 Avenue.
A spokesperson with Alberta Justice confirmed that Pasieka was previously convicted with uttering threats in 2009.
Pasieka has been scheduled for his first court appearance Monday.
